“John Harvey, British poet and novelist, brings depth of character study and beautiful imagery to the police procedural.”—The Washington Post
Why would a fifteen-year-old boy commit suicide? Despite the fact that he’s a no-good kid on trial for bludgeoning an elderly couple to death. But when the senior investigating officer is then found brutally murdered, DI Charlie Resnick is put on the case, which leads to sinister and startling revelations. It also brings Resnick into contact with Hannah Campbell, with whom he finds himself falling unexpectedly and awkwardly in love.
